Wooden Award list: Allen Crabbe among top 50 players

Gregory Shamus

Crabbe has the potential to be one of the best players in the Pac-12 this season, and he's beginning to earn national recognition for his efforts in Berkeley.

Allen Crabbe, a 6'6 forward with the California Golden Bears, was one of 50 players named to the Wooden Award preseason list on Thursday. Crabbe was one of just three players from the Pac-12 to make the list (Solomon Hill of Arizona, Brock Motum of Washington State) and is primed for a breakout season.

Crabbe averaged 15.2 points, 5.7 rebounds and a little more than two assists a night in 2011-2012. With the departure of All-Conference player Jorge Gutierrez, coach Mike Montgomery will look to his junior forward to help carry the load for a team with NCAA Tournament aspirations next March.

The Golden Bears were picked to finish third in the conference last week by the Pac-12 media behind only Arizona and UCLA. Their season opener against Cal State Bakersfield is scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. PT.
